Just ordinary plantain, as in weeds?  Or bananas?  Plantain grows all over here, in our gravel and flower beds.  I leave lots but have to pull some out or there'd be no space for anything else.  Where have you been looking?

The garden centre at Freuchie near Falkland (Bridgend Garden Centre I think its called) may be able to source them through suppliers.
Failing that I would try a catalogue search/online order.

Tesco used to stock them (haven't been in a  tesco in a while) or perhaps ask local grocer.
No plantain or breadfruit near me either
